Note, I measured my Series-E 35/3.5 with a focus throw of 100 - which is the same as the AI 35/2.8 (new) - not 50 as you guessed. Still very short. In fact Nikon must have realised is was too short because the AIS version increased to 120, making it the only AIS lens with a longer focus throw than the AI version.
